AnalyticsIQ is a data innovator. Founded by a team of entrepreneurial data geeks, we believe the most interesting data points aren’t black or white. Instead, they’re gray, and they come from the area between our ears. If brands can understand the beliefs, values and motivators of their target audience, they can grow their business and fundamentally improve people’s lives.
Meet The Team
Chief Executive Officer & FounderDave founded AnalyticsIQ 10 years ago after the successful acquisition of his former company, Sigma Analytics. Besides building brilliant teams, Dave enjoys time with family, friends and his four pets. Never a dull moment! He pairs wine (usually a Tuscan red) with yoga or tennis to slow down after work. He is an alumnus from the University of North Florida and earned his MBA from Georgia Tech. Stat that makes him think: 15% of Americans believe that the Sun revolves around the Earth.
Chief Strategy OfficerMike joined the AnalyticsIQ team eight years ago, but also worked with Dave at Sigma Analytics. At work, Mike runs operations, but also spends a fair amount of time raving about his 3 kids. Mike is passionate about service work, and although every client opportunity is exciting in its own way, he truly loves the work we get to do with non-profits. To rejuvenate after a project, he likes chewy juice – it’s a thing. Mike graduated from the University of Rhode Island, and earned his MBA at Georgia State. Stat running through Mike’s mind: 100% of the best days of my life occurred after marriage.

She brings incredible expertise from her over 30 years of experience in the big data, analytics, and computer software industries. Scarlett oversees product development and our Department of Cognitive Sciences and also ensures that our data meets all CCPA and HIPAA privacy standards. Scarlett loves traveling the world, enjoying a great glass of champagne with her husband and friends, staying up to date on the latest fashion trends, and spending time with her dog Elvis. Stat that Scarlett thinks of often: Individuals who are very likely to purchase high-end food for their pets are over 110% more likely to order themselves meals from a food delivery service on a weekly basis.
Chief Data ScientistGregg has been with AnalyticsIQ from the start, and also worked on the Sigma Analytics team. He is numbers all day, every day which extends into one of his favorite hobbies - poker. No casual player, Gregg visits Vegas every year for multiple tournaments including the World Series of Poker Championship tournament. He is Carolina bred, earning his Bachelors from Clemson and his Masters in Economics from the University of South Carolina. Fun factoid: You can't make a Straight with a 5 AND a 10, but it’s impossible to make a Straight without a 5 OR a 10.
Sarah Cavrak, PhD
Director of Cognitive SciencesSarah’s contributions to the team have allowed us to be smarter about the use of Psychology when it comes to collecting consumer data and creating marketing products. When she isn’t getting into the heads of the US population, you will almost always find her outside. She describes nature as her real “home” and enjoys jogging the streets, going into the mountains, or practicing yoga. Bullet proof coffee pushes her out the door every morning. Sarah attended Edinboro University for her bachelors in Psychology, and Georgia State for her Masters and PhD in Cognitive Sciences. Stat on Sarah’s mind: More than 20% of the world's oxygen is produced by the Amazon rainforest.
Chief Revenue OfficerAs a born and bred Georgian woman, Anna is the epitome of Southern hospitality and grace. Luckily, she also knows data better than anyone. With 16 years in this crazy industry under her belt, she has seen it all. When she isn’t brainstorming new ways to use data with partners, she enjoys time with her family, cooking or learning to play the guitar. The best nights include red wine while sitting by the water. Anna attended the University of Georgia. Stat that defines Anna: She lives in a house divided... 50% Bulldog and 50% Gator.
Chief Financial OfficerDean is our master of all things finance. When he isn’t counting beans or crunching figures, you can find him on his bike, bowling or reading. His love of the outdoors takes him all over the world, a freedom he can enjoy now as an empty nester (well, except for Jet, his Corgi). He attended the University of North Florida where he earned his Bachelors in Accounting as well as his MBA. Stat that presents in his daily life: 85% of the time Corgis obey commands the first time
Senior Vice PresidentGail is a can-do-all kinda woman. She is our master of accounting, compliance, human resources, and generally gets things done. When she takes off her many hats from the office, she is a self-proclaimed “baseball mom” courtesy of her teenage son. Her daughter attends Gail’s alma mater - Georgia Tech, and appears to be shaping up to be just like mom - all business. Living in Georgia won’t keep her from NYC style pizza - even if that means Gail has to travel. Gail earned both her Bachelors and Masters at Georgia Tech. Gives her pause: Walmart generates $3,000,000 in revenue every 7 minutes
